    A simple n00b

    Um...Hi...I'm new here. I'v only been drawing for two and a half years and... well...I'll just post some Images for you.

    A simple n00b
    This picture was really fun to draw. I used a reference and drew it on paper without any shading then scanned it into my computer and colored it in open canvas. I was trying to imitate the pc cell shading but it dosent look quite right.
    The original refence pic is here but Its on Deviant art, and I dont haver permision to upload it here.

    A simple n00b
    This one was a speed drawing, I drew in on paper in about 15 minutes and colored it in open canvas just a quickly.

    Those are the only images I can really upload, I have a few more i would like to show you but I drew them from some life pictures and I'm waiting for the original photogropher to give me permision to show them online.

    Well , I can say one little thing about teh second picture( the profile), it has a little proportion problems. The chin really shouldn't be so flat , and straight it needs some curves. And the entire head a has an awkward shape to it. Not being mean just some help.
    Here, I use this guys advice when I draw heads , it has helped me improve and should help you too.

    That profile really has not correct proportions, eyes looks great, did u use reference? I suggest u to look at andrew loomis book how to draw heads and hands, that should help learning face drawing alot. And do yourself portraits looking at mirror it helps. Oh and if u stop by my sb, i'd like to hear what do ya think of it.

    Yes you can. There is 'drawing tutorial super mega pack' (or smt like that) in torrent sites. If you dont know how to use it or cant find, pm me ill upload, but my net speed is slow as snail so it can take a while. And bout that profile, i think you shouldnt fix it, you should redraw it.

    I really like the first picture. I think its very well done. I don't really know why, it just is.

    I love the eye sketches you really know how to show an emotion with just the eyes.

    The only problem I think I can point out has already been pointed out by Evxyza92 so you should be fine. Keep it up!

    Well, that is what I am here for! Don't worry, the crits take time, and you need to post a lot in other peoples books. Not many of them spam the threads like I do. Plus, lots of artists are elitist bastards.

    Crits: On your first piece I think it would benifit from some smoothing out of those colors. It looks rotoscoped. I imagine it was probably taken from a photo or painted on top of one. If so, it would be cool to see the original to make a little better comparison. The lines aren't subtle enough. They look to all be the same weight; try using different thicknesses.

    I thinks someone crited the second piece, and they are right. Do some skull studies and that will help out on the facial proportions.

    The eyes and noses are pretty solid. I would outline them against the paper a bit more to make the scanning go a bit better for you. It helps it bring out the lines. Also a few of the noses look flat, do some more varried shading.

    Glad you did the skeletons. I would point out that the shoulders slope a bit more and don't jut straight out. The weight balance is very good though. You could also shrink the chest a tad.

    The last ones are nice, and I am glad you are doing some studies. The woman in the lower right (with her arms up) would actually do much better to have shoulders drawn, even if you don't draw a neck. I think her hips are on the small side; but without shoulders, it just makes it more apparent. The other one is pretty solid, though agains with varried line. It also looks like you should loosen up a bit when drawing to get a more natural contour line, though I can't say for sure since I haven't seen you draw.

    I think that does it! Keep trucking along; and remember to drop by people's sketchbooks!
